    I wasn't clear on whether the rice was cooked rice or dry rice. I figured since the lentils needed to be cooked, the 1 1/4 cup rice was probably dry, not cooked. Well, I did that and the ratio was right. Tasty recipe. - 8/12/09

  • I made this with a small adjustment. Instead of water, I used vegetable broth. It was absolutely delicious! - 1/25/16
